And yeah, I'm really, really tired.

I just got home from a weekend in Dallas. Sadly, the Diva and Daisy are on their fabulous global adventures. However, I got to spend two days with my darling friend K. The days? Jam packed with fun. And food.

I'm sure many of you think, "Wow, Cha Cha! Did you go to the grassy knoll? What about the museums? Dallas has so much to offer. What did you do?"

And I will tell you. We went to IKEA. And Marshall's. And Sonic. And Chuy's.

It was fantastic.

K. and I haven't seen each other in three years, but no matter - we picked up right where we left off. She cracks my shit up. Also? She introduced me to the most amazing tool ever in the history of mankind.

You see, K. has two golden retrievers. One of them, who has a lovely red face that is now mixed with grey, has cheeks the color of graham crackers. Both of these dogs are a bit furtastic and are suffering in the heat.

So, I helped K. brush them outside. She let me use The Furminator.

The Furminator is that brush that promises to pull all sorts of hair off your dog so you can pitch it instead of find it, say, shed all over your carpet. And I am here to tell you: The Furminator works. And, most importantly, is highly satisfying.

Now, I'm the woman who loves to paint simply because I like tasks with tangible results. The Furminator is like that. By the time we were done, we had enough hair to make, like, three puppies. And the dogs loved it.

At one point, I turned to K. and said, "This is the most fulfilling part of this trip. This is my favorite part."

Because we are friends, K. didn't miss a beat. "You are one weird lady."

I recently spent three days in Chicago and saw the most amazing things.... Nordstrom's Off the Rack, T J Maxx Chicago style and would have done Ikea if it had been downtown. Not a single museum, art show or tourist stop. (Don't tell)

OH, yeah. Love the furminatot! We have a dog who looks deceptively non-hairy, but really is like a St. Bernard underneath. The Furminatior has saved my furniture, and carpet, and beds, and clothing a lot of furriness!

Would the Furminator work on the worldest fluffiest cat? He's big (bigger than many dogs, in fact - he weighs 9 kg) and his fur is about 7 cm long. We find it EVERYWHERE!

The furminator does indeed rock. All four of our dogs enjoy a good brushing! I can totally dig how that would be the highlight of your trip... though IKEA is generally a fab option as well.
